[millionday] Iraq needs the employed to be updated on how to work within the new fields that are coming to iraq with electronic technology and investment laws among other things that will become very important for their future
[millionday] they are without a doubt left behind right now and the need for education is great
[millionday] this is great

[millionday] yes this is it will include whomever wants to take part and is in iraq as opportunity brb
[millionday] check this out -- here we go -- NAWAH Port Management (NPM), a business unit of North America Western Asia Holdings, announced today that it has entered into a formal agreement with Iraq’s Ministry of Transportation and the General Company for Ports of Iraq to quadruple the size of its terminal operations at the Port of Basra (also known as Al Maqal Port),
Iraq’s historic port located in Basra’s city center on the Shatt Al Arab waterway. By expanding its operations to a second terminal, NAWAH is building upon its commitment to modernize the Port of Basra, revitalizing the Shatt Al Arab as a major trade lane for industrial and commercial cargo alike.
[millionday] note -- seems like they are expecting huge trade -- QUADRUPLE
[millionday] “We are immensely proud to be working hand in hand with our Iraqi partners to further Basra’s growth and reemergence as a strategic trading center, bridging East and West,” said Paul Brinkley, NAWAH’s president and CEO.
“Beyond our goal to create a world-class port operation, we are deeply committed to building local talent and we’ve already demonstrated that through our staff – a team comprised of Iraqi managers, professionals and operators, trained in world-class technology and equipment operation.”
As part of this most recent 10-year agreement between NAWAH and the Iraq government, NPM will rehabilitate Berth #13’s 150-meter waterfront and its 40,000-square meter cargo laydown yard.
Once construction culminates on the berth, it will join NPM’s Berth #14 operations as the only fully containerized terminals at the Port of Basra.
[millionday] so this is amazing -- great to see such growth and know we are invested in this wow
[rlsunsfan] Are these indicating towards the timelines we are hearing[DBJJ] Interesting tidbit - NAWAH is part owned by Pritzker of Hyatt Hotels fame ...think he knows what's going on there?

[millionday] here we go
[DBJJ] millionday Lives 2 blocks from me
[millionday] The Acting Minister of Finance, Safa al-Din al-Safi and the Governor Iraqi Central Bank, Abdul- Basit Turki discussed with the deputy head of the International Monetary Fund IMF, Shino Hara Iraq's debt settlement , in a series of spring meetings of the IMF and the World Bank held in Washington.
[millionday] DBJJ wow -- sounds like you need to walk the dog
[NRICHARDS] DBJJ Run down an ask him we will wait.. lol
[DBJJ] 'millionday :}
[millionday] A source in Safi's office told NINA "The two sides discussed the development of Iraq's relations with the International Monetary Fund in the areas of monetary and financial."
For his part, Shino Hara expressed "the IMF's readiness to provide support and technical assistance to Iraq in the areas of improving financial management and building capacity so as to improve the financial performance in Iraq.
[millionday] they also discussed the payments of debts here and also in other countries
[jtank] to pay off debt they need RR
[jtank] reality rate
[hub] millionday are these still war debts or service and product debts????
[millionday] they would want the debt to be paid with currency that is at a reality rate because it would be much more than the debt owed in the future -- the loss of protection is going to force them to make all arrangements to pay off debts left over from what they have paid -- so they are not at risk of legal and frozen funds that have just been unfrozen
[millionday] hub i believe it is all of the above
[millionday] many things have been delivered per the strategic framework agreement and we would think that payment would be made after the reality rate is set
[jtank] This is very close

[millionday] It looks like 2014 may go down as the year of recalls. We were already at a record pace, and now it seems Toyota is recalling 6.39 million vehicles worldwide, including about 30 of its models for a variety of problems. None of the faults have caused any injuries or fatalities, but there have been two reports of fires caused by a defective engine starter motor.
[millionday] not sure if you have seen this
[millionday] Saw an economic expert, Dr. Peace Sumaisem that the Iraqi Central Bank's decision to replace the Iraqi currency is a good step, but it is an inflationary pressure in a period of political tension that is currently taking place in Iraq and with the season approaching parliamentary elections.
She moved her office told a news media that the new trading currency with no withdrawal of the old currency, would be a significant monetary inflation in the domestic market.
[millionday] note -- this is stating that they have to begin trading currency or fall
[millionday] next part is very interesting
[millionday] She Sumaisem that "the central bank issued previously currency monetary metal after the change, but it disappeared from circulation and the effect that some actors smuggled abroad to take advantage of mineral makeup where" pointing to release monetary metal is a qualitative improvement whatsoever in circulation, but the important thing is the space will be a trading currency.
[jtank] she is saying to withdraw the old money because of inflation?
[millionday] yes - she is saying it can not be done that way and the announcement the way it is put out for the new currency makes no economic sense at all and i would call it smoke and cant be done
[millionday] for those that have this problem something else to cheer about and also something to check into
[millionday] The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century
[millionday] one last thing

nctallguy50 Can't see the moon here in NC, it's cloudy and rainy, But on a positive note, I have a Jordanian friend who came to visit me yesterday. He told me once again that that the IQD was going to go "up up up" and that family and friends in Jordan held IQD. Jordon has the 2nd highest valued currency in the world yet they hold IQD, they know whats going to happen.
